Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

Hello EVOKE,

It is time to get back to work. I have been working on a couple of projects: SEED, Gratitude Gardens, Wind Powered Laptop--but I am interested in what you all are doing?

I think it would be awesome if everyone made a brief reply that explained what they are currently working on, that way we can all offer suggestions and comments!

So come on; What are you evoking?

I'm currently thinking of how I could demonstrate and/or use the ideas I posted in my laptop heat post :P

gmoke sent this in an email I hope he doesn't mind that I post it here.

Published to multiple sites a piece on "How to Heal the World"
( http://globalswadeshi.ning.com/forum/topics/how-to-heal-the-world ), about tree planting and expanding the biosphere and am preparing to go to an event at Harvard on geo-engineering this afternoon.

I am working on a way to use mobile phones to provide information to community health workers (CHW) and to help these CHWs to use a mobile phones to populate a community-based health informaiton system. Most Kenyans do not go to a health facility unless they are "dying". Less than 55% of women give birth with a skilled birth attendant present. We therefore working on different strategies to take health services to the communities.

I'm still plotting ways to connect free internet educational resources with nonprofessionals (most sites are designed for educators to access the lesson material). While this would predominately benefit people affluent enough to have internet access, it did strike me earlier today that it might also be an opportunity to solicit donations to educational outreach in developing countries - the basic pitch being, consider giving part of what you would have paid to buy this material in a store to share it with a less fortunate student elsewhere.

I'm definitely deeply involved in building the basic structure of my idea for an Evokation, the Whatworksipedia (only a temporary name!). I need to get to a more beta level asap, so that I can rally the troops, and be clear about what specific things we need to make it happen. Every day for the past week or so, I've been working on it, and it's coming along slowly but surely.

Excellent! Thanks for re-focussing our efforts Agent Wintermute. All of these project ideas are exciting to me. I want to find a way to make these ideas "sticky" on the site. I'll feature this post for starters. How about posting something in the forums? I'm going to have a chat with the rest of the team here to see if we can't make some minor structural changes which means we can highlight and help develop the EVOKEATION project ideas. Any thoughts?

Can you share any more details on your project Agent Cronburg - I'm intrigued!

I'm uncertain what I am doing, but I am continually drawn back to considering global collaboration support, which is lacking and needed across the board. I wrote about this regarding food security at "Global Community Gardening Network - the idea" but the same idea applies to all other areas, and I might do a similar job of collecting relevant resources.

I'm teaching Yoga and training in health modalities to assist in bringing individuals back into balance with themselves so they can bring themselves back into balance with the environment.

I'm limted with time and energy (being a devoted housewife and mum of two!) However, I'd really like to push my ideas for a piece of software that alows anyone to place posts in their native language, and the information pa**** through a translator so that readrs can read in their native language. I'd like to create a global mums network, and if it's sucessful, get global garderners - all speaking to each other in different languages, but through instant translation.
I recognise that there are good translation sites on the net, but if this technology was inbuilt into my computer, it would be so convenient...I already share my thoughts with English speaking mums, but would love to speak with EVERYONE in a language that they feel comfortable with.

I have no experience of this myself, and have no goals for protecting my IP . I'd like to help anyone in anyway possible to achieve their private evokation - I'd give my time freely and help in menial tasks, ie, researching, data collecting, data entry etc....anything really!

I'd also back any evokers re maternal health, as this is close to my heart...:o)

I'm trying to prioritize between creating a local and regional resourceful community garden network with my team from our company Growcology, or to put more time into developing a Global Gratitude Garden Network with Daniel, Patricio, Wintermute, and other Agents.

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Stinging Nettle

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle. Let's start with the chemical constituents of this plant:37 % Non-Nitrogen-Extracts19 - 29 % Ash9 - 21 % Fiber4 % Fat22 % ProteinOnce the leaves are drid, their protein content can reach an astounding 40 %, which is much higher than beef, which even under the best of circ**stances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
